ISIS accepts withdrawal from southern Damascus - Observatory
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights stated that ISIS announced through the negotiating intermediaries, that they will comply with terms of agreement which was reached between them and Russian representatives and the Syrian regime to depart from the south of Damascus, Al Arabiya reported on Saturday.

The agreement came after intensive artillery and missile strikes, accompanied by violent clashes between the regime forces and ISIS’ loyal supporters.

The clashes took place within the perimeter of Yarmouk camp in the southern part of the capital, in an attempt by the regime forces to pressure the organization to adhere to the agreement after delaying its implementation.

Russian media sources announced an agreement on a cease-fire between the regime and armed opposition factions in Yilda, Babila and Beit Sahm, southeast of Damascus.

As for the towns of Kalamoun, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that an agreement between the Russians and ISIS terrorists mentions a cease-fire and the starting of the handover of weapons.

The agreement states also that the Russian side would organize the exit process of those who reject the agreement to head to their destination and to search convoys.
